, that it was not until 12:30 a.m. eastern time that nbc was able to call ohio for mitt romney. even that call was just mitt romney as the apparent winner. because for five hours after poll closing it had been so close that it was impossible to say who had won the state. in fact right now mitt romney is the apparent winner of ohio because his margin of victory is only 1% and the entire vote isn't in yet. otio has been called for mitt romney but this was really, really close. still though as steve schmidt argued very well last night even when it's really, really close there is no prize for second place. even when it is that close a race. even a one-point race or zero-point race you would rather be the guy who won even if it's by a little than the guy who did not win. so ohio goes down not as a tie, not as otio but a win, in the mitt romney column and that matters. a win that is frankly as important to mr. romney's presidential prospects as his win was in michigan a week ago. in both those big important bell-weathery states, rick santorum gave mitt romney a run for his money. but ohio and michigan also s
mitt romney right now with 86% of the vote in. it is very, very close. a difference of just over 3,000 votes with 86% of the vote in. in idaho, the caucuses are under w way, and no characterization of the race in idaho yet. now, to some of the races we have already called. in north dakota, rick santorum is the projected winner of the caucuses in north dakota, and mr. santorum is the projected winner tennessee and the projected winner in oklahoma. mitt romney the projected winner of his home state of massachusetts and nbc news has allocated all of the massachusettsegates to mitt romney who is the former governor of massachusetts. and the strange two-man race where the virginia republican party set such strict rules to get on the ballot that in the strange, strange decision by virginians that effectively took them off of the primary map this year, mitt romney is the projected winner the two-man race over ron paul. mr. gingrich and mr. santorum are not on the ballot in virginia. in vermont which is immediately contiguous with massachusetts, mitt romney is the projected winner of the r

to virginia, a state where only mitt romney and ron paul are on the ballot. in virginia, this is interesting, too early to call. same story in vermont, too early to call. again, nbc news can say mitt romney is leading in the green mountain state. again, newt gingrich, the winner in georgia. that is the second state he has won during this campaign. he also won south carolina. as of this hour, we are too early to call in both virginia and in vermont. newt gingrich lives to fight another day, chris. >> i think it's very important, he saved his dignity, i think that's what he had to do making clear, you got to carry your own state, he is not going any where he is finished. >> ed schultz, looking ahead at newt gingrich's future, what -- looking ahead at mitt romney's future? >> he has been furious since day one, hasn't been represented, doesn't have the money expect one guy bankroll it he is the biggest joke in the field right now. where it s okay, he is going to win georgia. he ought to. that's where he is from. i tell you what he will win georgia better than mitt won michigan. >> there is somet
. >> and the big premier tonight. >> did mitt romney have a better wednesday than super tuesday? as the political world wakes up? it's clear mitt romney did well thanks to 12,000 votes in ohio. like all romney victories this year, it comes with a caveat. as santorum takes a stronger claim as the conservative alternative. despite all the results, all the new delegates, the story is the same, romney has a perception problem. santorum has a math problem. and as for paul and gingrich, they simply have a candidate credibility problem. and president obama doesn't sit super tuesday out. his first 2012 press conference includes a sharp rebuke of the republican candidates that he says are beating the drums of war when it comes to iran. it's wednesday, the day after, march 7th, 2012. this is the daily rundown. super tuesday is behind us. let's get to the first reads of the morning. mitt romney won the raw popular vote. he won states in five time zones, and still, all that comes with a but. romney continues to struggle with the same parts of the party he struggled with the entire campaign. core conservative
ago. nbc news is declaring that mitt romney has won the state of illinois. mitt romney is projected winner in that state. latest results are 19% in mitt romney with 54% of the vote. rick santorum 28% of the vote. only 19% in right now. this is enough to project mr. romney as the winner. we'll be watching the percentages and the rankings of the other candidates as the percent of the vote increases. this is exciting. this is election night. republicans of the great state of illinois making big decision about whether to punch their ballot for newt gingrich or rick santorum or mitt romney. that's not the way it's worked at all. have you seen the ballot? have you seen what the ballot looks like that republicans were using today in illinois? it's different in every county but this is representative. let's put up the macon county ballot. if you're going vote in illinois, if you want mitt romney to be president, you can i understand indicate that mitt romney is your preference for president of the united states right here on this part of the ballot. whether or not you do that, doesn't reall

'm the one candidate who has the ability to debate barack obama decisively. >> mitt romney, rick santorum, and newt gingrich each putting their spin on how they did in last night's super tuesday races. the state everyone was watching, though, ohio. it spent a good part of the night in the too close to call, but at 12:30 eastern time this morning, called romney the apparent winner in a one-point close shave over santorum. we'll explain what that means. it remains the apparent category because ohio averages a 3% uncounted election night vote even when at 99% reporting. then just before 4:00 a.m. eastern time, nbc news declared romney the projected winner in alaska's republican caucus. romney also won big in the idaho caucuses. and he took massachusetts, vermont, and virginia. rick santorum countered last night with primary victories in oklahoma and tennessee. he also won the north dakota caucuses and newt gingrich also chalked up a win with 47% of the vote in his home state of georgia. the former house speaker is vowing to fight on with primaries next week in alabama and mississippi. in all

evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" tonight from new york, mitt romney has won the illinois republican primary this evening. he spoke to reporters in a chicago suburb and went after president obama as a person who doesn't share the same values. >> our future's brighter than these troubled times. we still believe in america, and we deserve a president who believes in us, and i believe in the american people. >> romney shifted into the general election mode with his big win in illinois. he turned his attention to the president's past experience as a law professor. >> yesterday, i was giving a speech at the university of chicago, not very far from here, not very far from where professor barack obama taught law. it was a speech on economic freedom. for 25 years i lived and breathed business and the economy and jobs. i had successes and failures, but each step of the way, i learned a bit more about what it is that makes our american system so powerful. you can't learn that teaching constitutional law at university of chicago, all right? >> romney really went after the president.
states of america. thanks, you guys. >> former massachusetts governor mitt romney speaking in massachusetts tonight. addressing his supporters. we do not yet know the results in ohio. it's still too close to call in that race. as you saw, the numbers going by while mr. romney was speaking, the numbers on your screen. we've all been watching those numbers coming in in ohio, wondering what's going to happen. the difference between rick santorum and mitt romney is just 10,000 votes. a lot of that still to come in. that's just a fascinating race to be watching right now. rick santorum has won in oklahoma and tennessee. but ohio we knew was going to be the big prize tonight. to have that still undecided at this point is remarkable. >> it's an amazing night for people who care about this country. and it's politics, everything will turn on this. we've been watching the trend over the last week or so. it's been all in romney's favor. all the big money, he poured tremendous advertising this weekend. we saw there were a lot of people deciding for him. tonight we're learning the late
mitt romney supporter, phil musser, co-anchor of cnbc's squawk box, "the new york times" andrew ross sorkin, jen ben dri of "the huffington post" and former white house deputy press secretary bill burton who runs the obama super pac, priorities usa action. mitt romney the only man standing in illinois today, as newt gingrich campaigns in louisiana and rick santorum is in pennsylvania. but with team romney these days, is there even such a thing as a decisive win? phil, i want to go to you first on this. and these numbers, i think, are somewhat staggering, if you look at politico reporting in illinois mitt romney outspending rick santorum 7-1. chicago, he's outspending santorum 21-1. i want to unpack the chicago numbers first because why spend that mump money in chicago? isn't that romney territory already or is this a sign of a campaign not letting anything go? >> that's a good question. the one thing to know about illinois is that 70% of the vote in the illinois primary comes from north of the interstate 80 that cuts the state in half. or the bulk of the vote comes from, it come
the president will run for re-election. we're also seeing a little bit of how mitt romney, the likely republican nominee is going to run against president obama. we'll have a bit more on that later in the show. of course, before mr. romney can fully jump into a general election campaign against the president, he still has to dispatch his rivals for the republican nomination. at this point in the campaign that means mitt romney has to be showing that he's consolidating his lead, showing he is locking up the republican establishment. pretty much every single day now that means mitt romney rolls out a high profile republican establishment endorsement. last week it was former florida governor jeb bush. this week it was republican senators mike lee and marco rubio and former president george h.w. bush. getting endorsements like that, having high profile surrogates, to talk on your behalf, for mr. romney that's been a doubl double-edged sword this year. on our staff and on our blog we talk about this as mitt romney's surrogate problem. right around the time of michigan primary you may remember mr. rom
campaign. >> romney finished third in both southern states. >> mitt romney forced to spend $2 million in mississippi and alabama. >> he said in alabama i'm going to win here. >> tell me what mitt romney needs to say. >> he's got a message problem and narrative problem? the messaging question. >> he's busy talking about cheesy grits and y'all and going around trying to be a regular guy. >> the vast number of the base does not want him. >> if you are the front runner and you come in third you are not much of a front runner. >> if i'm a weak front runner, what does that make newt gingrich. >> what happened to newt gingrich last night? >> newt gingrich vowing to roll on to tampa. >> i emphasize going to tampa. >> newt vowed to take his fight to tampa in he made it clear he is not getting out. >> gingrich is in this thing until the end. >> what state do you think you can win. >> i don't know yet. >> newt gingrich is swimming in a sea of delusion. >> it is hard for us to get inside of the great man's mind. >> newt craves attention as many of us politics do. >> why is this guy in the race. >
states. he won the most delegates. he even won the big prize of the night, ohio. so why does mitt romney still look like a big bowl of cold mashed peas to republicans? romney's argument seems to be you're stuck with me so live with it. not exactly the lift of a driving dream is it? the race goes on and on and guess what? the next few states favoring rick santorum. santorum might have a clean shot at romney if only newt gingrich would get out of the way. newt won his home state and nothing else yesterday so why is he staying in the race? meanwhile, over at team obama they're smiling i guess. i talked to david axelrod about the state of the race and president obama's great fortune in having mitt and company as his opponents. and only opponents. and rush limbaugh keeps losing advertisers but wait until you hear which big name progressive is defending him. finally let me finish tonight with the lack of greatness in the republican presidential campaign as if you needed to hear about it from me. we begin with mitt romney weak in victory. chuck todd's political director and chief white house co
romney. just hours ago, romney was saying santorum's campaign was running on fumes. >> the reagan tradition of visionary conservatism is based on proverbs and the very deep belief that without vision the people perish. i believe we need a visionary leader who's prepared to talk about a dramatically better future with dramatically more jobs, dramatically more energy and a much safer and stronger america. i think that's the key to winning this fall. not all this petty baloney but the really big choices. as i went around both states talking about $2.50 gasoline, having all sorts of folks in elite media say, that's not possible, then finally on saturday in "the wall street journal" a piece was entitled, newt gingrich is right about gasoline. and he walked through step by step why it was possible. and the fact is it is very possible. and then yesterday steven moore reported in "the wall street journal" -- these numbers are so amazing. i think the fact that i want to talk about substance is what makes this campaign different from other campaigns. it is the reason we're going to go all t

you, polls closed about an hour ago. mitt romney has won the state of illinois, mitt romney the projected winner in that state. the latest results we have right now are 19% in, mitt romney 54% of the vote, rick santorum, 28% of the vote, ron paul 9% of the vote, newt gingrich, 7% of the vote. we'll be watching those percentages in the rankings of the other candidates as the percentages of the vote increases. this is exciting. this is election night. republicans in the great state of illinois making big consequential decisions whether to punch their ballot for mitt romney, rick santorum, ron paul or newt gingrich. actually, that's not the way it has worked at all. have you seen what the ballot looks like that republicans were using tonight in illinois? it's different in every county, but this is representative. let's put up the macon county ballot. if you're going to vote in illinois and you're voting in macon county, which is right in the middle of the state, if you want mitt romney to be president, you can indicate you want mitt romney to be president of the united states,
get out. mitt romney wants them both gone. will the march through march push anybody to the breaking point? team obama starts hammering romney from the other side as hom me in struggles with his own party's primary. they define him as an unacceptable alternative and romney can fully fight back. john boehner butts heads can fellow republicans over billions of dollars for roads, rails and bridges. can he get the tea party base to govern? good morning from washington. it's super thursday. this is "the daily rundown." let's get to the first read of the morning. super tuesday marks the beginning of the end. it's marked the beginning of the end of every competitive campaign for the last quarter century. for now, this republican race apparently is going on. mitt romney tries desperately behind the scenes to end it. the campaign spent much of yesterday making the case that neither santorum or gingrich has a realistic shot and brought out show and tell to highlight the advantage adding it would take an act of god for one of them to go. we will get to 1144 and be the republican nominee. that g
. and he's also lost to rick santorum in mississippi. now, he's not losing to mitt romney and all mitt romney's money which has been mr. gingri gingrich's excuse so far when he lost. he's losing to santorum, the next big question in the race as much as he doesn't want it to be, is when is newt gingrich going is get out? if newt gingrich's billionaire, the funder in the case, moves to keep him in the race, is that a move to help mitt romney, to keep the conservative vote split so rick santorum cannot cleanly beat mr. romney and mr. romney will win by hook or by crook? mr. gingrich addressed his supporters in alabama within the next hour. he reiterated he's not getting out but is taking his campaign all the way to the republican convention in tampa. of course, they all say that before they get out. time will tell whether or not mr. gingrich means it. now, this may also be an appropriate time to take a step back and concede one of mr. gingrich's points tonight, which is that everybody's been wrong so far about the race to pick a republican nominee for president. i mean, the media, self in
tonight, survivor alabama and mississippi edition. somebody could get voted off the island. mitt romney needs one win tonight to prove he can win in the south. just one win for him will do it rick santorum needs one win to remain mitt romney's chief rival. and they can't all win one state, so something has to give down south. polls close in three hours, at 8:00 eastern time. an msnbc will bring you up to the minute coverage as the votes come in. at 11:00 p.m. eastern, we'll have a full wrapup of the day's voting. gingrich and santorum need to deliver a knockout blow to the other, and tonight we'll talk to top strategists for both candidates. meanwhile x we have a second poll saying steep gas prices are going up and taking a toll on president obama's popularity. is there anything a president can do to lower gas prices? most people think there is. if possible, mitt romney has set a new standard for pandering. imagine that. a new standard for pandering, y'all. that's in the sideshow. finally, let me finish with how close this election is getting to look and not just on the republican side,
by a significant margin. we can also project that mitt romney will finish second and newt gingrich third. santorum needed to win tonight and he has. again, rick santorum the projected winner in louisiana. i am alex wagner. here with me tonight from new york magazine, john hileman. and there is breaking news tonight, former vice president dick china has undergone heart transplant surgery. we'll have much more on that story in just a few minutes. john, i want to go to you first. what do we make of this? it was in some ways a predicted outcome, rick santorum winning louisiana. does it do anything for his campaign? >> it keeps it alive. in mitt romney pulled off an upset, it would put the final nails in santorum's coffin. the next time we come here on tuesday -- >> april 3rd is probably when we'll be here next, giving santorum a chance to pull off wisconsin, that is what he'll need to do in order to really have a mathematical chance of securing the nomination is virtually nil. but he still has a chance if he pulls off a bunch of chances. rick santorum knows he cannot win this nomination outright befor
with the republican nomination turning into a complicated math problem. willard m. romney seems to think the solution is cheesy grits. >> morning, y'all. good to be with you. >> just 24 hours from two important southern primaries. >> tomorrow's southern showdown. >> romney leads with 31, but right behind him gingrich at 30. >> newt's got to show well in alabama and mississippi. >> i think the big surprise is how well mitt romney seems to be doing. >> mitt is predicting a victory in the alabama contest. >> mitt romney needs to prove he can win in the south. >> so let's talk math, shall we? >> the official delegate count is romney at 377, santorum at 146. >> romney's delegate lead being virtually unbeatable. >> a lot of these delegates are uncommitted. >> rick santorum is not giving up on this math question. >> the math is not the issue. >> it really is. >> the issue is vision. >> mitt romney's math is just like mitt romney's conservatism. it's bogus. >> it's keeping romney from willing. >> willard has managed to turn on the southern charm. >> eating grits, i think cheesy grits he called them. >> i've
